For a Dear Friend - BnW Card

My new favorite stamp to play with...Belles 'n Whistles. They are just too cute and darling.
I just love coloring her so much, I now have to start my BnW stamp collection.

Belles 'n Whistles Stamps Blog now has its very first Challenge! Hooray!
This first Challenge calls for D.I.Y. Flowers.
I've made my 3 pink flowers from this tutorial. It's really easy to make and I really like the way it looks.
I've used a scalloped circle punch, to make it look more like a rose.

This card is made for a sweet friend of mine, Elise.
She loves BnW stamps! I wanted to congratulate her for making the BnW DT.
I'm not sending her the money! LOL She will be getting a surprise gift from me. hehehe :)

Belles 'n Whistles Stamp: Beary Big Hugs
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencil & Sansodor Oil
